SHARE the puppy love this Christmas by donating some much-needed items for West Australian Guide Dog Puppies.

These items include pet futon beds, Kong wobblers, large goodie bones, snuggle/plush toys, Love ‘Em liver treats, and fleece or crochet blankets.

“We wanted an easy way for the community to get involved with Guide Dogs this Christmas, to kick start their training journey,” Guide Dogs WA’s Suzanne D’Arcy said.

“All of the items on our wish will help the development of our Guide Dog Puppies.”

Mrs D’Arcy encouraged the public to consider donating an item from the organisation’s wish list to help the puppies.

“You can feel good knowing you’ve spread the Christmas cheer and made a real difference to the lives of some very special West Australian puppies.”

It takes a minimum of two years and costs over $35,000 to train a Guide Dog, and Guide Dogs WA is reliant on the support of the community to fund the Guide Dog program.

There are five drop off points across Perth, including:

– VisAbility Guide Dogs WA

– Perth Upmarket at QV1

– Cottesloe Vet

– Holiday Inn Perth City Centre

– Anytime Fitness Beldon
